“Amit Shah, Home Minister was admitted at AIIMS, New Delhi for post-COVID care. He was discharged today at 7 am,” the medical facility said in a statement.
“He has fully recovered and is fit to resume his routine activities,” it added.
The Home Minister had tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month on August 2. He had undergone treatment at the Medanta Hospital as he tested positive for the novel coronavirus and was discharged after he tested negative. He was later admitted to the AIIMS on August 18 following complaints of fatigue and body ache.
Amit Shah was the first Union cabinet minister to test positive for the virus. Since then, four other Union ministers have tested positive in India.
